Hey there, I’m
I build innovative products on the web keeping design in mind. I’m currently in my final year of undergrad in Computer Science and Engineering.Say Hi!
Hi! I’m Akash, a creative 22-year-old who loves building products with code.
Since then, I have been working on improving my skills in Web development. I decided to dip my feet in web development because I wanted to build products that were easily accessible to anyone on any device. It always motivates me when I hear how my project helped someone solve their problem.
Right now, I am in my final year at PES University doing an undergrad in Computer Science and Engineering. I can’t stop talking about front-end development and user interface design these days!

I constantly learn new and exciting concepts in computer science and web development. I try applying these concepts to solve real-world problems. Few technologies I enjoy working with:
- HTML, CSS
A peer-to-peer file-sharing web app I built to solve a problem I faced while transferring files from my phone to my laptop without having to upload files to a cloud account or download specific file-sharing apps.
Blaze became the #1 Product of the day on Product Hunt and gets about 900 weekly views. DigitalOcean is sponsoring the infrastructure for this project. Technologies I learned while building Blaze:
A color palette generator from an image I built to learn the Rust programming language. Building Pigmnts also introduced me to various clustering algorithms and how WebAssembly works at a fundamental level.
- Web Assembly
- CLI development
A productivity tool I built to manage a lot of tabs open on our browser. UnTab provides a beautiful search interface to search tabs, bookmarks, history and also perform quick actions with just a few keystrokes.
I built UnTab in the FOSS Hack 2020 and it was one of the winning projects. UnTab is available as an extension for both Chrome and Firefox. UnTab has a powerful themes and plugins API that makes it possible for anyone to extend UnTab’s feature set.
- Browser Extension
- Framer Motion
- Tailwind CSS
Talks & Workshops
I conduct talks and workshops to share my experience in different fields with the community and network with like-minded peers. This quote keeps me going — “The best way to learn is to teach”.

Creating Visual magic with Figma
ML in your browser using TensorFlow.js
I document my learnings from building projects on my blog with the hope that it will help fellow curious developers like me. Though it takes time to write these blogs, I always come out with more understanding of the topic than I originally started with.
Building an expressive API for custom confirm dialogs in React
How to and not to build Sidebar layouts on the web
New way of sharing files across devices over the web using WebRTC
